Introduce Yourself

Hey,

 I am new to the forum, but not to Fuji. Based in the south east of England I shoot everything from still life to portraits, but not much landscape - I really must try harder on those.

Currently have an X-E2 that I bought, new, in 2014 that I normally use with a 35mm f2 and an X-H1 I picked up used with either the 16-55 f2.8 or 50-140 f2.8. I also have a Viltrox 56 f1.4, but it only gets sporadic use.

Looking forward to the forum.

Hi there, Didiergm here, from France, a non-gifted amateur who insists on taking images in the hope that sometimes a couple of them will be pleasant enough to be printed, framed and put up on the wall.    I started this journey in the mid 70's when my grandfather passed away and I discovered his old camera and home made (!) enlarger (he was an engineer) so I basically could setup my own dark/wet room for next to nothing. So I learned by myself (and some books!)  the art of turning a black ribb

It would be nice to know a little bit more about other members so perhaps those who are willing could post here.   I'll start. I'm olli, orginally from Northern Ireland, now a serial expat, currently located in Pasay City, part of Metro Manila in the Philippines. I've been shooting seriously since around 2008 with a variety of cameras but switched to Fuji just over six months ago. I have the X-E2 with 18-55, 55-200, 23 and 35 lenses. I describe my kind of photography as 'urban documentary', wh

Hello!

I'm Travis from Monterey, CA. I'm a new Fuji owner. Picked up a used XT1 with an 85mm Rokinon 1.4. Just getting the hang of things. Looking to add a 23mm AF. The Rokinon wiggles a millimeter or so when changing the fstop. Normal or did I buy a misfit? I'll check the other posts for the answer.

Cheers!

Hi Travis, I have the 85mm F/1.4 Samyang lens too. (Nikon version with adapter) The lens should not wobble under any circumstances. I recommend exchanging it for another one if the warranty is still available.

Thanks for the response. I'm been trying to figure out if its the correct lens for the camera. Not really wanting to go though the trouble of an ebay return :/.

Hello.

My name is Carsten and I currently live in Bielefeld, NRW, Germany.

For me, photography is a kind of documentation beyond time. It started with a Fujifilm MX2900 Zoom until I got stranded here with the Fujifilm X-A1. 😜

Hi everyone, a Kiwi here (New Zealander), new to the Fujifilm world, having come from a series of Canon cameras. My last camera was the EOS 450D, which I have not used for at least 5 years. Yesterday I just bought an X-S10 kit with 18-55mm lens. As I expected, it's a whole lot of learning about this particular camera's functionality, without the benefit of knowing Fujifilm's style of UX.

We have a family vacation overseas planned for October this year. I'm hoping to learn a good deal about this camera before the big vacation. Since the pandemic started this overseas trip (all going well) feels like a big moment for us. Worthy of investing in a camera and learning to use it reasonably well!

Hello everyone,

My name is Benjamin, I am 35 and I am a newbie in the Fufi-world. I just bought my first camera, a XT-4 with XF 16/80F4 R OIS WR.

It is a huge task to tame this beast (I was working with Canon for years before Fuji), and I am curious to read this forum more deeply!

Thanks for having me!

Ben

Hello everyone, 

my name Klaus and I'm from southern Bavaria. I'm doing nature photography, mostly landscapes (plus nightscapes in the future). I love the whole process from planing, shooting, post processing and printing. 

After 29 years as a Nikon shooter, I switched to Fuji GFX four weeks ago. Even I'm in the mid 50s, I was willing to try to carry the additional weight on my hiking trips. 😉 ATM I'm really curious about the GF 20-35/4 and hope this lens can complete my lenses in the wide-angle area. 

I hope I can learn many things here in the forum. Maybe at one point I can help other Fuji users too. 

If you are interested I have a few images displayed at. www.500px.com/klausschleicher

 

Happy shooting to all 

 

Klaus

Hi. Living in Wales but from the Highlands of Scotland so 2 opportunities there already for good landscapes. Switching system to Fujifilm coming from Pentax full frame as getting tired with the heavy gear on hikes.
